This works because the "A" heads have a duration up to 1/3250 second while the "S" heads have a duraton up to 1/1600 second. The "A" head is twice as fast, and draws twice the energy of the "S" head creating a 2:1 ratio.

        Comments about Elinchrom Ranger Free Lite S Flash Head:

        I shoot a lot of adventure sports, both here at home in the Pacific North West and around the world . I had the Ranger A Heads, and although they have an extremely short flash duration, I couldn't achieve fast shutter sync speeds over 1/200th via Pocket Wizards.With the S Heads, I'm now getting sync speeds up to 1/8000th (with some flash fading)!

          Comments about Elinchrom Ranger Free Lite S Flash Head:

          This flash head delivers in light quality, performance and usability. It is the standard for this type of on-location flash needs and because of the price, is beyond anything pro-photo has to offer.

            Comments about Elinchrom Ranger Free Lite S Flash Head:

            tough, well designed S head. It has a slower flash duration than the A head but unless your shooting really fast motion, it works great. I use the A and S heads togeather on the RX SPEED AS unit too.

                  Just needed the S Lite. I've been shooting with Elinchroms for several years. Love the consistency and reliability; controls are easy, battery's weight is very manageable for a female photographer/assistant.
